Okay, I obviously can't get enough of my trip to Thailand. Going through the thousands of flicks, I came across this and shed a tear. I came out with the big guns on my last day on the beautiful island sands of Koh Samui with Terrapin's 12th edition of their prized double IPA, Hopzilla. Everyone's eyes, including the Four Seasons staff, bulged when I whipped out arguably the most potent beer monster the entire country of Thailand has ever seen. At 10.8 percent ABV, this 110 IBU, hop breathin' terror was absolutely delicious paired with this slightly sweet and delicious seafood soup boasting coconut, fresh prawns, clams and a hint of lime (pictured on the right). With the weather, environs, awesomely nice people, and this monstrous beer that's well balanced with toasty, toffee-ish Maris Otter malt, I was in heaven. The resort's staff commented on the thickness of the beer, how floral and citrusy the fragrance was, and the artwork. I loved their intrigue on such a powerful and imposing beer that effin' rocks! Great job Spike and crew!
Anyway, I have a ton more flicks to share, but I am back in the ATL about to stop by the grand opening of Yard House and then judge the Samuel Adams Longshot competition.
Here is a peace out from native Thailander, Pop, and yours truly.
